Still no response from R&D

Hello if anyone over there can get hold of R&D as I'm still trying to get these parts

I now have a 1993 7.3 factory turbo engine in my truck.

Cam stage1 or 2
Comp 910's
New headbolt/studs
Head gasket set
Upgraded clutch for zf5
Pump upgrade
Turbo upgrade
Injector upgrade
New glowplugs

If someone could at least give the guy a nudge as he's not responding to any of my emails?? My contact details are on www.dieselpumpuk.com or email [email protected]

Thanks for the advice on cams everyone now I just need to get one here!!

Are you talking about Russ/Typ4(i.e. who this topic is about), or Justin/R&D IDI Performance?

well at least you know your hijacking lol.

tip;
people who have trucks and parts to sell here are supposed to be using the devoted marketplace to list their stuff and provide their contact info.i would begin searching there.if you don't see them and their parts listed there,you could send them a pm letting them know,they're loosing a potential major revenue.

Problem is that no one has yet done a before and after dyno run where the only change is the cam. There are lots of dyno results but no comparisons to quantify the gains of just the cam. The gains will also vary depending on your fuel, turbo, timing etc.,

There are dyno numbers of trucks with the cam but no before and after numbers. You could always be the first...

Isn't it a royal PITA to put a cam in a V-8?

Something like this:
Pull everything in front of the engine, pull crank/water pulleys, pull timing cover.
Pull valve covers and lift entire valve-train(does that mean head bolts??), and find a way to hold the pushrods up and away from the cam.
Then pull cam, reinstall new cam with assembly lube. (Whole can of worms with pulling cam gear and installing on new cam too)
Reinstall everything in reverse order.

Let me know what I missed guys, thanks.

Not quite that complicated.
Don't know why you would ever need to pull the heads.
If you pull the valley pan you can easily get at the push rods and lifters.

Yes, it is major surgery. You do not have to disturb the head fasteners though. The IP and injector lines need to come off so you can remove the intake, valley pan, lifter retainer and lifters. Then everything on the front of the engine.The front clip has to come off or else the radiator, AC condenser and grille can be removed. I've pulled a couple of cams at the junkyard to get cores. It's not too horrible but a full swap with putting everything back would be an all day event, possibly more if you ran into any complications.

When the cam was first developed it made 11% more torque and HP across the board.
That was 20 years ago. So, just a hp number isnt really important as the timing fuel and all the other variables can affect those results in IDENTICAL trucks.
The gain is important. I might do a before and after on the dually just cause.

IDI Cam

I was wondering if these cams are still available and how much they cost?
I know it is an older thread so am curious if they are still available
